In 2020, artist Zorica Kelly Markovich was the CFAT x Nocturne Summer Artist-in-Residence in Halifax, Canada, and created a project that responded to echolocation by relying on the sense of hearing and the action of deep listening.

Signal / Return is an immersive sound art piece that uses sound ecology to examine acoustic relationships between living organisms – human and non-human – and their connections with the environment. In this piece, audio recordings of bat communication and echolocation are used to create a multichannel, spatial audio experience.

For this project, the artist sourced bat calls from the feeding ecosystems and roosts around the Atlantic Provinces. Deep listening requires a conscious choice to slow down, and since bats can be elusive, this was a necessary part of her process and contributed to the final composition of the work. Bats are communicative mammals with a wide range of vocalizations, this multichannel, immersive soundscape consists of 7 species of bats and over 24 different vocalizations.

Zorica invites listeners to close their eyes to connect with the sounds on a deeper level. While engaging with Signal / Return, the artist asks individuals to discern the possibility of interspecies symbiosis within a shared landscape.

Please join Zorica in a conversation about her process and the inspiration behind this project and her walk created for Mount Saint Vincent University Art Gallery called Decoding Nature: Sense Impressions and the Biophony.
